Citywide Bench Plaque Program

The Bench Plaque Program places durable zinc, bronze finished plaques on current and future benches throughout the City of Gilroy. Benches are located in Historic Downtown Gilroy and at the Gilroy Library patio. Plaques are long-term reminders of the donor or organization, in support of the Gilroy community. All profits will be used entirely to support local public art projects.
